3 stars Spaced Out forth album fom 2006 named Unstable matter released at same label Unicorn, is anothe r worthy album in jazz fusion field, but again only a good album towards great in places and nothing close to a masterpiece, at least for my ears. On this album Space Out raise a bit the bar in musical terms, is even more complex then the one reviewed by me earlier, is with a metallis ctouch here and there, and sometimes is something a la Planet X meets Dream Theater but without that stunning keybords playing, but with a good doze of great musicianship and fusion elements. Not better then Eponymus to me, not bad either, Spaced Out did another great album in their career, but I manage to give only 3 stars again, same proble here, the instrumental passages are sometimes to complex, and to repetative without keeping my ears and brain very entertaining. Here on this album they remain to a 3 line up , the keybordis from Eponymus album left the band, the instrument remaing for handleing to the main man of the band and the bass player Antoine Fafard. He did an exemplary parts again, showing that he is one of the best bass players from the new generation, with a great lines and inventive chops. There vis some excellent interplays between musicians, specially the ones between Fafard on bass and Martin Maheux on drums, excellent moments showing their true talent in this field.To me this album sounds like an organized chaos, a good release for sure but is not quite very enjoyble in places. Anyway 3 stars again for this album, a band that needs to be checked out. The cover art and the booklet is excellent. A good album for sure.
